# Nodal Analysis - Dependent Current Source

Deploy nodal analysis method to solve the circuit and find the power of the dependent source.

Solution
I. Identify all nodes in the circuit. Call the number of nodes $N$.
The circuit has 4 nodes:

Therefore, $N=4$.
Solve the circuit with the nodal analysis and determine $i_x$ and $V_y$.
1) Identify all nodes in the circuit. Call the number of nodes $N$.
The circuit has 5 nodes. Therefore, $N=5$.
